ICSA ‘Centre of Excellence’ for fish, Rick Stein’s cookery school is located in the picturesque fishing village of Padstow in Cornwall, providing the perfect balance of chef demonstrations and hands-on cooking, in an unrivalled setting.

You’ll use the freshest seafood, landed right outside the cookery school, and classic flavours to create some really impressive dishes. There’s also plenty of time to enjoy the fruits of your labour whilst overlooking the beautiful Camel Estuary. Whether you book a day of ‘fish and shellfish’ or a specialist cookery day such as Spanish, Italian or Asian, you’ll discover how to create some of Rick Stein’s favourite dishes.

Head Chef Tutor Nick Evans Rick Stein Seafood ICSA Accredited Cookery School

Nick is their head chef lecturer at Rick Stein’s Cookery School and what he doesn’t know about fish isn’t worth knowing. Nick grew up in East Sussex with his family and from a young age worked the land around their home with his brother and father growing everything from potatoes to a small vineyard.

As part of his hospitality degree at Oxford Brookes, Nick worked across their restaurants in Padstow and learnt under Stephane Delourme at The Seafood Restaurant. After completing his degree, Nick returned to the company working in their Padstow Kitchens, at The Seafood Restaurant working his way up to senior sous chef and then working as Head Chef at St Petroc’s Bistro.

In summer 2016, Nick took over the role of Head Chef Lecturer at the cookery school in Padstow – a position he was born to do. There he leads a small team who deliver memorable cookery experiences for guests, who leave having learned trade secrets from the restaurants and how to cook some of Rick’s classic dishes.
